Come Home, Take Another Look
If you have been away from the Catholic Church for whatever reason: divorce, birth control, lifestyle, a painful memory, or any other reason, we would love for you to take another look.

Come Home, Take Another Look
If you have been away from the Catholic Church for whatever reason: divorce, birth control, lifestyle, a painful memory, or any other reason, we would love for you to take another look.

The Easter season is a time of great joy as we celebrate the resurrection of the Messiah. But you may not be experiencing this joy and feel that you don't belong to this rejoicing church. St. Francis of Assisi parish is inviting you to "Take Another Look" without feeling pressure. We will have a short, three night program at St. Francis of Assisi parish on Mondays, May 11th and May 18th and Tuesday, May 26th. Each night will begin at 7:00 pm and last no more than 2 hours. If you have an interest, please let us know by calling Joe Mitcho at 703.967.9959. We will send you more detailed information.

On a Cursillo weekend you will examine and celebrate your relationship with Christ and the Christian community. There will be a series of talks and discussion, times of quiet, opportunities for spiritual direction, Mass and Reconciliation, and fun, too - plus you'll meet new friends with whom you can share your walk with Christ. There will be a Women's Weekend on May 14th - 17th at Missionhurst in Arlington. Fall weekends for men and women will be held at the Diocesan Spirituality Center, San Damiano, in White Post, Va.
